I'm thinking they will a little. Thats the perfect drop kit for the new Silverado's though. Ask the salesperson who you're buying the rims from. See if they can put one on for you to test. Please post pictures of those rims though :gasp:

yeah should be no problem to mount a tire up and throw it on the truck and turn the wheel back and forth a couple times, we do it all the time at work, usually with bigger tires tho, never bigger rims lol good luck, those newer trucks can be a hassle to fit rims and tires on

i think those would look amazing on your truck. i love the black on black look. are those the canelli rims you were talkin about? cuz those look great

they would look great if you can get them to fit, or even 22s would look good, i know they will fit if you leave your truck at the current hight, i have no idea if you slam it tho, i have yet to put rims that size on a slammed chevy with the new body style, let us know how it goes

i got an o8 crew cab with the giovanna canelli 24s black with stainless steel lip on a set of 295/35/24 nitto 420s and they look good and clear fine but close to the firewall when you turn and thats with a 2 in drop shackle in the back....bad news they discontinued that wheel so now you have a choice from straight chrome or straight flat black
